Helen’s on holiday this week but Glen and Matt bravely soldier on without them, as the news isn’t going to react to itself. Tune in to the world’s only male-exclusive podcast as we perform our semi-regular temperature check on the state of Western civilisation.   The U.K. is having an election, the U.S. is entering a home, and Germany’s brain is unfortunately gone totally kaput. We also talk about Ireland recognising Palestine and the reactions to the ICC potentially issuing arrest warrants for Netanyahu and others. Come join us in the testosterone tank, won’t you?  Support the Show ..read more

The Return of the Third World (w/ Vijay Prashad)

During the middle of the 20th century, the Third World movement represented the desires of billions for agency and justice. As the old colonial empires collapsed and new power structures were emerging,  there was a brief moment of hope for a world in which the Global South stood strong, united and liberated.  This was until the collapse of the Soviet Union and the solidification of US-led liberal capitalist democracy as the dominant global system seemed to put an end to these hopes. However, things are now changing again. At the same time as China and other large economies are helpi ..read more

The ICJ & Israel (w/ Dr. Thomas MacManus)
Casement's Leftovers
by Casement's Leftovers

Last Friday, January 26th, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) issued its provisional ruling in South Africa’s case against Israel, ruling that there is a “significant risk of Genocide” in Gaza. Both supporters of Palestine and Israel have declared the outcome of the case as a victory, while there has been disappointment that there was no order for an immediate and total ceasefire. So what are we to make of the ICJ’s ruling? Can we expect Israel to change its behaviour? And if not, what must we do to force them to?  With us to help us answer these questions is Dr. Thomas MacManus, S ..read more

Bob Cratchit. Ron Weasley. Daniel Blake. Working class characters are often painted as humble folk, morally pure and deserving of our sympathy. But what if they're...not? Join us as we discuss truly progressive portrayals of the working class in film. Instead of patronising, what if films instead gave people agency over their own lives? Instead of portraying poverty as a purifying force, what if films were honest about the negative consequences of oppression on the subject? What if – and bear with me here – but what if working class people were sometimes bad?  We start our first episode o ..read more
